It's not that easy, no matter what you call northern natives some will be offended because they don't agree.
During the civil rights movement some wanted to be addressed as Negro, Black, or African American, and were offended if you didn't guess the one they favored. :crone:

About the only thing of interest to this old honky is the reference to eating raw meat.
For some reason, when I was in high school (Southern California, 1950's) a commonly heard epithet was "Eat it!"
The response was often "Eat it raw!"

In 1980, our HS football cheerleaders were chanting

Eat em up!
Eat em up!
Rah rah rah!

But we all know it was really

Raw raw raw!

Eskimo might have been askamiciw (which means "he eats it raw").
I eat raw beef with garlic salt on it YUM!!! So does that make me an Eskimo? I kinda hope it does.

At Penn State football games, the entire stadium sings Neil Diamond's "Sweet Caroline". Then somebody (being politically correct) banned the song because it promoted pedophilia. Eventually, sanity returned a year or two later.

Does that make anyone happy today? Or, as a victim of a pedophile, angry?

Still cannot remember what the question was.

Oh for sure--their behavior is totally illogical, as is most of human behavior. I fucking hate it. But you have to interact with humans to get things done in life.

When my kids are being illogical about what shoes they're going to wear, I can sit them down and have a 20-minute discussion about it--after which they will not have changed their minds one bit--or I can present them with an equally illogical false choice that gets us out the damn door. You have to learn the game, even if the game is stupid, or you won't get anywhere. The game, in this case, is a very simple, if no less stupid, one. 1.) You say "eskimo," you get called racist. 2.) Being labelled as racist stands in the way of many things in life, no matter how true it is or isn't. 3.) Therefore, don't say the word. Or do, and suffer the consequences. But don't act like you didn't know what the consequences were.

It's all just a big game of see who you can control, see how much fun it is to wield power and, of course, re-elect Trump in the process.

Nobody has labeled my racist ass and I can't see how it would stick if they did.

At least it wouldn't stick as far as my foot would be up the ass of whoever called me that.

Better not be a fuckin' Eskimo. I hate those motherfuckers.

With these you'll always be ready for an Eskimo kiss.

I've noticed that, all the times I've been to your house I've never seen an Eskimo. I just didn't want to mention it because it might be a sensitive subject. You known, like an Eskimo ran over your puppy or something.

Undertoad 10-07-2019 11:44 PM

My neighborhood is clean, as we say. Eskimo-free.

We don't take kindly to no blubber-eaters around here.

xoxoxoBruce 10-07-2019 11:48 PM

Um, don't be too hasty, one of their traditions is to share their wife on cold night in the igloo. :cool:

Undertoad 10-07-2019 11:48 PM

(You realize how bad any of us could be made to look, if any of our posts was taken out of context? :D )
